Jurassic Lake Lodge
Jurassic Lake (Lago Strobel) is the best stillwater fishery in the entire world for sheer numbers and size of rainbow trout. Roberto Alba has owned an estancia bordering Jurassic Lake for many years; recently he decided to build a lodge just a short drive away from this fantasy fishery. Rooms are tastefully decorated and provide a respite from the well-known squalls of the region. Roberto and his staff make every effort to ensure anglers feel at home. The lodge consists of five rooms, two doubles and three singles, bathrooms are shared between the rooms. A lovely sitting and dining room overlook your own private lake, anglers have access to high-speed Wi-Fi and a plasma screen to keep them occupied when not on the water.
Guests can count on an Argentine asado, empanadas, red wine and heaping portions of meat. Keep the rod handy for the evening hatch of 5 to 8lb trout a short walk away.
The region surrounding the lodge is dotted with lakes, rivers and creeks. Many of the lakes remain unexplored but the ones that have been visited all have special features and characteristics. The lake closest to the lodge produces quality fish in the 4 to 8lb class. Jurassic Lake is the main draw here, anglers can realistically expect shots at dozens of double-digit fish daily. Much of your success will depend on the weather you’re dealt but rest assured you can be guaranteed landing the largest rainbow trout of your life. Anglers are transferred about 30 minutes in a vehicle daily and then asked to hike about 45 minutes to the lakeshore. Depending on the weather, anglers have the opportunity to either sight fish or blind cast to trophy trout. Expect large fish in the 10 to 15lb range. We suggest gearing up as you were going on a saltwater trip.
Flights to Calafate by Aerolineas Argentina from Buenos Aires. From there, guests are transferred in air-conditioned 4WD vehicle five hours to the lodge. Anglers looking for a real adventure fly into Esquel and are then transferred all day in a vehicle along the Argentine countryside to the lodge.
